Final Goodbye

Dad, a Marine, was given a fitting military grave side honor
 that included a 21 gun salute, taps, and folding of the flag he defended.

Thank a veteran today.
Call or hug your dad today.

Saying goodbye is never easy, but we thank you
for all your prayers for us in the past few days.

A Father and A Son

Early this morning God closed the earthly chapter of Martin Keller
and ushered him into his eternal home with the Savior.

We have only had the privilege of knowing Dad for the last
fifteen years- good years of building relationships
and learning once again just how merciful God is.

How thankful we are that God allowed us to love this dear man!
We will miss him greatly.

"Love between a father and a son
is not always given,
sometimes it must be earned,
and even though it takes a while
for some of us to learn,
you can't deny the love between
a father and a son."

Laboring to Make a Difference

Last night we gathered in the home of the
missionary couple who is laboring to plant a church
in the Salt Lake Valley.

We brought all the CBF information,
freebies, mints, and other literature
to stuff in bags for the university students next week.

We will be given a table at Club Fair at Utah Valley University
where students can meet us and find out
what Campus Bible Fellowship is.

In no time at all the men had stuffed all the bags,
and we began another important project. 

These sweet peas come to the Bible study
(church plant) in Herriman, Utah every Sunday.

They are bright children and eager to learn,
so materials have been purchased to
include them in the Bible teaching each Sunday. 

Felt flannel graph figures with vibrant colors
came in sheets that needed to be cut apart.

All six adults grabbed a pair of scissors
to cut each visual that the children will get to see
in their Bible lesson.

It was fun to labor with the entire 'congregation',
and the guys were good sports about doing
a work that might be considered best left to the women.

How grateful we are to have brothers and sisters in Christ
who labor in love along side of us in the campus ministry.
Even stuffing bags is a big help.

How grateful we are to labor with them in planting a church
in a very needy place.

Together, by God's grace, we can make a difference.
